Surgery Interest Group will be having its final meeting of the year with a panel of L4 students who matched into surgery. The panel will include students who have matched into general surgery as well as integrated surgical subspecialties. Vascular Surgery Interest Group members are also welcome and encouraged to attend as we will have a few students who matched into integrated vascular surgery on the panel as well. The meeting will be held on April 25th at noon in the MEB in Lecture Hall A at noon. If you are interested in attending, please fill out this survey monkey so that we can provide the correct amount of food for everyone:


FMIG will be having a meeting on April 26th at noon in MEB S14. We will be having a couple residents from the Kenner program talking about family medicine residency, matching, and anything else you would like to know about. Come and enjoy some food and valuable info! If you are planning to attend please fill out the survey below so we can have enough food.


PMRIG will be having their final meeting at noon on Thursday, April 27th in room S6. 
Newly matched 4th years and current residents will provide insight into why they chose PM&R, which rotations were most useful, and other tips and inside information on how to navigate both junior and particularly senior year. They will also discuss the interview and matching process.  
Food will be provided.  


Please use the survey link below to nominate up to two medical students who embody the ideals of integrity, service, respect, and empathy. Members of the Gold Humanism Honor Society will then vote among the nominees to select two students from each class as Students of the Month. This is a great way to recognize classmates who go above and beyond! Email Julie at for any questions or problems.


Hey L3s and L4s,
Every year, the LSU Student-Run Homeless Clinics rely on third and fourth year medical students to operate. Starting this semester, we have officially changed the New Orleans Mission clinics to Saturdays instead of Thursdays. Ozanam Inn clinics are still on Saturdays from 10am-2pm. New Orleans Mission clinics will now be on Saturdays from 1-4pm. If you have already signed up for a Thursday clinic this semester, we apologize for the inconvenience. If you’d like to volunteer, please use this link to sign up. You do NOT have to have previously volunteered at either of the SRHCs to volunteer now. Feel free to contact us at the emails below with any questions about the clinics.
Thank you,
Heather Valdin, Ozanam Inn Clinic Director (
Max Musharoff, New Orleans Mission Director (
